NEO: The World Ends With You to Launch in July

Both The World Ends With You games are about the “Reaper’s Game,” a Battle Royale- like premise that sees characters having to complete a certain task within a number of days, life or death style.

A new group of characters are part of this story, led by protagonist Rindo. You can see more about what to expect from the game in the trailer:

The World Ends With You became a cult favorite in the Square Enix world, due to its modern style based on fashion trends in Tokyo, along with its distinct soundtrack and off-kilter battle system. If you haven’t played the original yet, you can find modified versions of the original available on both the Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms.
